Drupal Commons is a ready-to-use solution for building either internal or external communities. It provides a complete social business software solution for organizations.
Drupal Commons helps organize content into topic groups with blog, discussion, and document, wiki, and event content types. It also allows users to create relationships with each other in order to follow each other’s activities on a site. Authenticated users can view a personalized dashboard containing content from all their subscribed groups.
Drupal Commons provides freedom from the limitations of proprietary social software. Based on the hugely-popular Drupal Web CMS, Drupal Commons adds a complete layer of social business features that are ready-to-use on installation, and which don’t suffer from the constraints of proprietary alternatives.
